I had a lumpectomy in October..2.5 cm. I get annual mammos..this cancer grew fast and I was told it was due to the prempro...I immediatley went off the prempro
Lump was taken out..did not spread to the lymph nodes..had a test done on the lump at Genomics Health to determine if the cancer we hereditary..it was not..
I had 28 radiation treatments and was put on Femara - the side effects are aweful and the benefit is a 27 % chance of the cancer not returning.
Since the lump is gone and I am on any HRT and I had radiation, why is the femara necessary?
